It looks like there has been an update to these packages since the last time you refreshed the package cache. Note the version number:

$ apt-cache policy ghostscript
ghostscript:
  Installed: 9.10~dfsg-0ubuntu10.2
  Candidate: 9.10~dfsg-0ubuntu10.2
  Version table:
 *** 9.10~dfsg-0ubuntu10.2 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     9.10~dfsg-0ubuntu10 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 Packages

Running sudo apt-get update first should resolve the issue.

Hi,

which version of Ubutnu are you using? If you don’t know, you can check it with the following command:

lsb_release -a

I think you are using an old Ubuntu release wich has reached the end-of-life point. You can find this date for your OS on the Ubuntu Wiki.

running

sudo apt-get update

Fixed the issue!
